Craftsman 30CC 4 Stroke Curved Shaft Trimmer

I bought my 30CC 4 cycle Craftsman trimmer a few days ago and so far it has been great, it always starts right up and runs great. The weight balance is a bit off but if that's not an issue to you it is a very nice trimmer. It has a lot of torque for cutting pretty thick weeds, the trimmer head that takes the strips of line is very easy to load and the thick line lasts a good while. It's a good trimmer for the price and I would recommend it.

so-so at best

Bought the 25cc trimmer first but had to many issues with it and after two returns thought I might be better off with the 30cc. Nope same shoddy motor. Unit fouled the spark plug so I cleaned it and it started back up. Next time I went to use it, again no start. Checked plug and cleaned it a little, still no start. Shot in some starter fluid and got it to break lose and it started. Next time I took it out it wouldn't start unless I held the gas on (which the directions tell you not to do) this is the only way I can get it to start. Took it back to Sears and they told me because I didn't buy the extended warranty it was no longer covered. Way to stand behind your products Sears! I will continue to buy hand tools from them but no more power tools.

second one is the charm


I bought this item after reading some good reviews. The first trimmer I got, started to smoke ALOT and leaked oil after a week of use. I brought it back to SEARS and they replaced it with the same model 30cc 4-cycle. When I got home, unboxed it, poured some oil and fuel and let it run on idle for an hour straight. Replaced the oil with a fresh 30W, put a 91 octane fuel and mixed it with stabil fuel storage and treatment to breake in the motor. This thing is a BEAST. Lots of low end, mid end, and high end power. Smooth power band. Second one is the charm. I have it for 6 months now and still running very strong! Very good quality. This trimmer will last very long with proper maintenance and if you breake in the engine properly. Compare to 2-cycle this thing is very fuel efficient . Just make sure before using it, let it warm up for 5-10 mins before putting load. The reason why I'm giving it five stars eventhough I had a bad luck with the first one, SEARS is nice enough to replace it with a new one and the second one worked pretty good.

Does not restart when warmed up. Starts on #1-then warms up on #2- then stalls on #3 setting even after 5 min.

Excellent Motor! Year 2!


Power to spare! This thing loves to chew through weeds!

My litmus test for this machine was how well it started year 2 after being stored all winter. First changed the oil (not too difficult), second added new gas (Octane 93), primed brand new! No problems whatsoever!

I do have reservations about design:

1. This shouldn't be available as a curved shaft-its a bit unweildy, straight shaft would help with balance, as its a bit longer.
2. Sling point is in a bad spot. Its not anywhere close to the center of gravity on this machine.
3. Trimmer head is a joke. Eats through the stick type trimmer line like nobody's business and is a pain to change. Needs to be changed to a standard bump-feed.
4. Trimmer shield just isn't big enough, its throws junk everywhere.

Over All:

Easy Maintenance
Powert To Spare
Universal Attachments

Bad Head Design
Bad Sling Point

Overall----Buy the Straight Shaft Model!

My Plans:
Replace head and shaft with a Straight Shaft Bump Feed Head
Add Cultivator and Edger Attachments, this unit should handle them with ease.

Great Gas Trimmer


We purchased this gas trimmer with the edger attachment because we did not want the hassle of mixing oil and gas. While the unit is slightly heavy, it works great, and the attachments are easy to switch out. This makes it easy to get your yard work done quickly!

Powerful Engine


This is my first 4 cycle trimmer. It's easy to get it put together and start trimming. The engine is very powerful and takes a little getting used to since the power curve is different than a 2 cycle. It's nice not having to mix oil and gas.There's a little window for the oil to let you know if your oil level is low. I can easily see why this trimmer has won so many number 1 picks this year.

4- cycle gas powered weedacker trimmer wit a curved shaft


far superior to the 2-cycle craftsman that I have used for that past 5 years. the ease in starting and lighter weight frame along with the fact that no mixing of oil is involved contributes to facilitate my yardwork

Great product.


I purchased this gas only weed is a great product..I bought it because you don't need to hassle with gas/oil mix...just plain gas, makeit very convenient..It's easy to change the line once it wears down..product start right up, easy to comes with a quick reference guide. I previously had a craftsman weed eater, that I used for about four years, which led me to purchase this new one.. it is very dependable. You can also reassemble & disassemble it easily and fits in the trunk of your car for transport. Overall a very dependable product. I would recommend this product to anyone without hesitation..

4 cycle edger


After having trouble with the cordless C series battery powered Craftsman edger I opted for a deal on the 4-cycle. The battery ones just don't last enough. I bought two batteries and still one of them would'nt work (ended life in under two years. Sears took care of me on the warranty and I scooped up this one. The 4-cycle is very powerful. It easily lasts multiple edging days without refilling. I would guess 2X longer at least. The no-mix system is simple, the pull start is like any other gas powered engine. A few pulls to choke, then a warm up and run mode. So far so good. The easy change out shaft is a bonus if it ever does break. The only thing to replace will be the shaft. It comes with a 2 year warranty without any other extended warranty deals needed. It costs a bit more than the 2-cycles and cordless ones but its much more powerful. If your looking for a easy to maintain, heavy duty (and a bit heavy, slightly awkward weight distribution/weight) this is good bargain.

Great Trimmer


I like this trimmer no more mixing gas and oil. Also no more pulling the string to start. With the easy start just insert the cordless easy start and let it do the work to get it started.

I purchased this item for my son, who is a senior in high school and has been hired this summer for lawn mowing/weed wacking jobs. He has a couple of lawns that frankly required a durable, rugged weewacker and we have been very pleased so far with the performance of the 30cc weedwacker gas trimmer

30cc 4-cycle Curved Shaft Weedwacker Gas Trimmer


The weed wacker is easy to operate. The plastic rope is easy to install. The wacker cuts lots of heavy weeds and grass. It starts good and runs really good.

Hard To Handle


This trimmer is too heavy on the back end. The weight is not distributed evenly. It makes it really hard yo handle and therefore it will not trim evenly. Sears did a really bad design on this trimmer.

had to return it


unfortunately we had to return 4 weedwackers and go elsewhere. The head would not turn because grass wrapped around the shaft. Another wouldn't run. Another had parts missing and on the last one the rope would not recoil.

Balance too far to the rear


Have used this trimmer about 10 times since purchase.

Pros: Powerful, easy start, don't have to mix oil, shoulder strap included

If it were not for the following "Cons" I would have given this a 5 star rating.

Cons: Balance is too far to the rear. From an ergonomics point of view, it is very stressful on your wrist, as you have to pull up while working the trigger with one hand. You have to push down with your other hand which causes undue stress to the shoulder, elbow and forearm. If it were not for the included shoulder strap, this unit would not be manageable at all.

Instead of developing a weed whacker for a 4-cycle engine (which by nature are bigger and heavier than 2-cycle), they used the same basic shaft design and length of the lighter 2-cycle. For a good balance, and therefore a design which would not adversely stress wrist, shoulder and elbow joints, the shaft should have been about 6 inches longer which would have allowed the shoulder strap to be located at the center of gravity (balance point).

A personal preference is that I like the automatic feed style trimmer. I don't like the style used with this model, as it is impossible to maintain a uniform line length.

I would not recommend this model to a friend, though I may end up giving this away to someone I do not know.
